4th of July

Happy Independence Day! I've been busy lately and haven't had the time to keep up with my blog. In the next few days, I'll try to play catch up with my weekly picture submissions. This week's theme was magic. I was going in a different direction with the photo choice, but at the last minute decided to use the fireworks picture I'd taken of the kids. So my official submission was this:

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. 
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
-Roald Dahl

I took the kids out to the Carthage Golf Course and went to the general area we usually sit. It was mid-evening and I had the kids look up toward the sky and pretend to see fireworks. Then I came home and added the fireworks in post-processing. And because I am incapable of just taking one photo, I have a few more to share. 

Our family will be taking it easy today. Jon may take the kids fishing this morning and then we'll probably grill burgers for dinner. Of course we'll be going back out to the Carthage Golf Course this evening for REAL fireworks! 
Happy 4th to all our friends and family!
